What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also referred to as skin needling or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive nonsurgical treatment that utilizes a small device housing incredibly fine needles. During a microneedling treatment, the skin is punctured with these tiny needles to create controlled “micro-injuries.” These tiny micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural healing response, prompting an increase in collagen and elastin production in the area. COSMOPen microneedling provides the following benefits without removing the top layer of skin:

  • Improving firmness and texture
  • Reducing blemishes
  • Softening the appearance of scars

Morpheus8 and INFINI are microneedling devices that incorporate radiofrequency energy to enhance results and tighten the skin.

What Makes the COSMOPen Different?

COSMOPen is a high-speed, powered microneedling device that precisely and gently creates a non-thermal trauma just underneath the skin’s surface. This not only forms new tissue with elastin and collagen fibers, but it also generates new capillaries which improve blood supply. This causes the skin to plump, thicken, and tighten, effectively improving the appearance of scars, fine lines, and uneven skin texture.

COSMOPen’s adjustable speed and depth allow for a completely customized treatment with 12 32-gauge needles. The controlled punctures are delivered at a 90-degree angle, avoiding common risks of other devices, such as tearing or infection. The device was designed to provide very precise treatment and can be used virtually anywhere on the body. Patients who have multiple treatments may see results comparable to laser skin resurfacing—without the downtime, cost, or discomfort.

What Should I Expect During a COSMOPen Microneedling Treatment?

After an evaluation of your skin to determine if COSMOPen is the right fit for your concerns, we tune the device settings to your needs, with needle depth and speed adjusted accordingly. We thoroughly cleanse the treatment area before beginning, minimizing the risk of infection and allowing us to have a clear view of your skin.

During treatment, you may experience very slight discomfort, but most patients report that pain is minimal.

Treatment with COSMOPen alone can be beneficial, though many patients benefit from the combination of microneedling plus the application of a topical solution. Used in conjunction with COSMOPen, these solutions or biologic materials can be delivered into the dermis for the most benefit.

What Should I Do After a Microneedling Treatment?

Immediately after your treatment, we moisturize and hydrate the skin to promote healing and nourishment. You may feel like you have a slight sunburn, but this sensation should improve quickly, as will any redness—expect your skin to be slightly pink for around a day or so. Most patients return to work the following day, and makeup may be worn at this point.
